Section Records welcomes back two of its finest artists for an exciting new collaborative album project. Audioglider & Xspance (aka Roberto Sodano and Myles Webb) were perhaps always destined to work together, having journeyed on a similar musical orbit on the Internet – especially on the deep and wide-ranging audio tapestry of Soundcloud, where their paths first crossed. Both will no doubt already be familiar to those with a penchant for electronic music at the more eclectic end of the creative spectrum.
While collaborating on an EP project a year ago, Roberto and Myles enjoyed the creative process so much, that they started rapidly swapping music files to see how far they could push their combined energies, culminating in an incredibly productive purple patch in late 2016. Over the following months, these sessions came together to form ‘Kollision’ – a positive clash of musical styles and influences, fusing together naturally and effortlessly, crossing musical, emotional and melodic boundaries and telling a beautiful sonic story in the process.
This decidedly dynamic duo, marry their unique sounds and deft production skills to perfection throughout this 10-track album. Whether it involves getting chilled, reflective, and diving deep into hypnotic horizontal territory with the album’s opening title track and ‘Bounce’; becoming wonderfully moody and introspective on ‘Ghostly Corners’; or soaring with melancholic beauty on ‘Snopoke’. Their diverse musical palette cleverly blends experimental and anthemic elements within the pulsating ‘Glas Herz’ and ‘Snarky’; and delights with the head-nodding, analogue synth chug of ‘Dammerung’. Audioglider & Xspance are also not shy of upping the tempo and laying down some infectious, hip-swinging grooves to explore nu-disco-tinged territory (‘Dappled’ and ‘Bedazzled’); or creating an enchanting Balearic beauty with their album finale – ‘Appearing Sun’. This is heart-warming music that demands your full attention, an album featuring a diverse and engaging collection of tracks that can be revisited time and again.
